Courtney loved going to Kemah so much, each time we would visit she cried when we started to go home. She would ride the wheelchair accessible carousel three times in a row each time we would visit. We had just gone to Kemah the week before Hurricane IKE. Courtney had lost her two front teeth and that was where she went to spend her tooth fairy money.

We had a wonderful time there letting Courtney pick our her own little sand castle, shells and star fish. She picked out a Galveston Princess t-shirt to add to her collection and even chose a t-shirt for Hayron while there. Murdochs and the Mermaid Pier are no longer there due to the destruction of hurricane IKE.
